Noticeboard

We will be recalling all our patients for their annual chronic disease review starting 1st April.  You may receive a text appointment or letter inviting you to attend.  We have arranged our clinic reviews so that, where possible, one review appointment will cover all the chronic diseases you may have.  Please attend this review even if you are seen regularly by the doctor or attend the hospital for this condition. 


Dr Peddie sadly left our practice at the end of February and all GPs and Staff send their good wishes for a happy move to her new practice.  If Dr Peddie was your assigned Named GP, you have now been re-allocated to one of the remaining GPs at the practice.  If any patient would like to know who their allocated doctor is, please ask a member of staff who will be able to provide this information.


 Although your allocated Doctor will have overall responsibility for your care, this does not prevent you from seeing any other available GP in the practice.


The practice is actively trying to recruit new GPs but in the interim will continue to employ locum GPs to provide appointments for patients.


New Pharmacist- from February we have a new pharmacist on site who will deal with any prescription queries.  They may also call you in for a medication review.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.


NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £8.20
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
